"I think it's going to be a good fight. I'm a fan of the sport first and foremost. I think it's an interesting matchup. Nogueira's strenght tends to be on the ground and in the submission game and Tim is just a long, strong hard to take down guy who's got great striking abilities. It's a classic matchup and for the interim title so they both have a lot on the line. I like Tim's chances in that fight given Nogueira's performace against Heath Herring in the last fight. I like Sylvia in a stoppage of some kind."

-- Embattled UFC Heavyweight Champion, Randy Couture, predicts that Tim Sylvia will stop Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira this weekend at UFC 81: "Breaking Point" to win the interim heavyweight title. "The Natural" is correct on his predictions more often than not.
